The user who can refer me to the band that sounds THE MOST like the Sex Pistols will receive a weekend getaway to the slums of Costa Mesa and have a nightcap at the Ali Baba with our punk forums very own 5cent Slut and lookpizza. They don't disappoint.

So ... what bands sound close to the Sex Pistols? I am very curious.

Clash
Ramones

They're the 2 best punk bands right behind Sex Pistols

Also, maybe Misfits.

Fear, both are marginally talented and were only really able to get by on their frontman's asshatery.

Okay on the serious side ...

Does anyone know any modern bands, preferably that play now that have a Sex Pistols sound.

My sarcasm detector is off right now sorry guys.

TKO Records and stuff. They try to sound like '77-'78 punk but obviously it's hard for them to make the same impression nowadays.

^ You should def. get some recordings on there, even if they're live recordings done on your mate's cassette.

I do NOT want that. We're holding back all urges to upload anything short of our professional recording with Sublimes keyboardist producing it.

Or those might be my drummers words.

It's Public Relations, not Punk Rock.

That doesn't make sense, but it almost does.

Good call. My band put up some shitty recordings we did with a laptop at one of our first practices. Not only are the recordings bad but we didnt have the songs down either. Im ashamed to have people hear them.

FEAR was marginally talented? Have you even listened to the stuff Spit Stix plays on their albums? Almost every drummer I've known has said that he is one of the most incredible and under rated drummers ever. Plus their guitar work was great as well. and if you're gonna tell me that Flea couldn't play bass, then your ears don't work at all. Even the most recent lineup of Fear is badass. We opened for them back in August and it was one of the most incredible shows I've ever seen. And believe it or not, Lee Ving is one humble and gracious human being.

There are no punk bands that sound like the Sex Pistols. The closest is someone like the Who really, the Sex Pistols were a rock n roll band musically, its just the media that plastered on that punk shit. And they were a ****ing good rock n roll band, what Jones (Guitar and Bass) and Cook (Drums) recorded on that album was phenominal, J Rotten speaks for himself... really unique at that time.

When they had Matlock they were even better IMO, completely different sound and proper bass lines, just listen to a few demos from when he was in the band:

Well its not like the Pistols actually sound like what has become 'Punk', they sound like just a rock band, I mean, did you even listen to that demo of Problems?

I'm not saying that as some sort of insult to the Pistols, I just don't think they should be classified as Punk.. because they aren't really are they. But in the grand scheme of things they are one of the most important bands of all time, and possibly one of the greatest.
